Useless Desires

Standard tuning Capo: 8 Dsus2: XX0230 G9: 320030 A: X02220 Bm: X24432 The most important thing to remember to play this the way Patty does is that she is toggling on and off with her ring finger on the 4th fret of the D string when she plays the Dsus2 an G9 chords in this song. The tab would kinda look like this: Dsus2 G9 E-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--- B-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--- G-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--- D-0-0-0-0-4-4-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-4-4-0-0-0-0--- A----------------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--- E----------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--- That means when you play the Dsus2, you have to use your pointer and middle finger instead of your pointer and ring finger. Listen to the CD to get a hang of the timing an everything. Dsus2 G9 Dsus2 G9 Dsus2 Say goodbye to the old street that never cared much for you anyway Dsus2 Different colored doorways you thought would let you in one day G9 Goodbye to the old bus stop, frozen and waiting Dsus2 A G9 Dsus2 The weekend edition has this town way overrated Dsus2 Walk across the baseball green, the grass has turned to straw Dsus2 A flock of birds tries to fly away from where you are G9 Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, old friend, I can't make you stay Dsus2 A G9 I can't spend another ten years wishing you would anyway Dsus2 G9 How the sky turns to fire against a telephone wire Bm A G9 Dsus2 And even I'm getting tired of useless desires Every day I take a bitter pill that gets me on my way For all the little aches and pains the ones I have from day to day To help me think a little less about the things I miss To help me not to wonder how I ended up like this Walk down to the railroad track and ride a rusty train With a million other faces, I shoot through the city veins Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, old friend, you wanted to be free Somewhere beyond the bitter end is where I wanna be How the sky turns to fire against a telephone wire And even I'm getting tired of useless desires Say goodbye to the old building that never tried to know your name Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, old friend, you won't be seeing me again Goodbye to all the windowpanes, shining in the sun Like diamonds on a winter day, goodbye, goodbye to everyone How the sky turns to fire against a telephone wire Burns the last of the day down an I'm the last one hanging around Waiting on a train track, and the train never comes back And even I'm getting tired of useless desires
